Discover what inspires artist Carley Cornelissen

Discover how artist Carley Cornelissen finds inspiration in this time lapse showing her sketchbook full of some of her iconic motifs from local flora to birds, foxes, squirrels, hares, panda bears, and flamingoes that often appear on her works.

“When creating my pieces I seek to raise awareness of the independent lives of endangered animals and birds. I start with research and images of the particular species and then assemble my palette. I am inspired by colour combination and patterns that I see in everyday life, in nature, design and fashion."
